Shaquille O'Neal: Boston Pops' Guest Conductor!

Shaquille O’Neal puts on his coat and tails as he conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus on Monday (December 20) at Symphony Hall in Boston, Mass.

The 38-year-old Boston Celtics player conducted performances of “Sleigh Ride” and “We Are the Champions” at the show!

“[Celtics PR director Heather Walker] asked me if I wanted to conduct the orchestra,” Shaq told ESPN. “I was like, ‘Seriously, like a real orchestra?’”

“I have a whole new respect for conductors,” Shaq said before the show started. “I went through a rehearsal today, and my arms are shot right now.”
